Crete vs. Seward, 10.4

Seward's Tyler Lenz (72) celebrates the first of two successive sacks against Crete quarterback Zach Fye (5) in the second quarter on Friday in Crete.

Class A

School (Record) | Pvs. | This week

1. Bellevue West (6-0) | 1 | at Omaha South

2. Millard West (6-0) | 2 | at Grand Island

3. Millard South (5-1) | 3 | Columbus

4. Omaha Burke (5-1) | 4 | at Fremont

5. Lincoln Southeast (5-1) | 5 | at Lincoln Pius X

6. Omaha Westside (5-1) | 6 | at Elkhorn South

7. Grand Island (6-0) | 7 | Millard West

8. Elkhorn South (4-2) | 8 | Omaha Westside

9. Kearney (4-2) | 9 | Lincoln Southwest

10. Creighton Prep (5-1) | 10 | Omaha Northwest

Contenders — Millard North, Omaha North.

Comments — No changes this week, but there very easily could’ve been. Millard West scored the game’s final 23 points to win 23-13 over Kearney. Elkhorn South had a fourth-quarter lead on Millard South before the Patriots prevailed 26-21. Creighton Prep drove 76 yards in the final 35 seconds and scored on the final play of the game — a 4-yard TD pass from John Coniglio to Mason Armstead — to pull a 16-14 win out of the fire on the road at Columbus. Grand Island has a chance to move way up next week with Millard West coming to town Friday. Elkhorn South hosts another pivotal game this week, this time against No. 6 Omaha Westside.

Class B

1. Omaha Skutt (6-0) | 1 | at Waverly

2. Scottsbluff (6-0) | 2 | Lexington

3. Waverly (6-0) | 3 | Omaha Skutt

4. Omaha Roncalli (4-2) | 4 | S. Sioux City

5. Northwest (5-1) | 5 | at York

6. Hastings (5-1) | 6 | at Seward

7. Mount Michael (5-1) | 7 | Blair

8. Bennington (3-3) | 8 | Schuyler

9. Norris (4-2) | 9 | Omaha Gross

10. Seward (3-3) |10 | Hastings

Contenders — Lexington, McCook.

Comments — The only result this week that came close to changing the order was Roncalli’s 34-31 win over Mount Michael. Top-ranked Omaha Skutt puts its state-best, 19-game winning streak on the line at No. 3 Waverly, while Seward plays host to Hastings in another game matching rated teams on Friday.

Class C-1

1. Pierce (6-0) | 1 | at Logan View/SS

2. Wahoo (6-0) | 2 | Bishop Neumann

3. Adams Central (6-0) | 3 | Minden

4. Ashland-Greenwood (6-0) | 4 | Lincoln Christian

5. Aurora (3-3) | 6 | Boone Central

6. Columbus Scotus (5-1) | 7 | Columbus Lakeview

7. Bishop Neumann (5-1) | 5 | at Wahoo

8. Ord (4-2) | 8 | Broken Bow

9. Kearney Catholic (5-1) | 9 | at Cozad

10. Gothenburg (5-1) | 10 | Valentine

Contenders — Wayne, Ogallala, Columbus Lakeview, Cozad.

Comments — Columbus Scotus’ dramatic fourth-quarter win over Bishop Neumann shakes up the middle of the top 10. Neumann has a chance to make up that lost ground with a game at Wahoo Friday. Kearney Catholic solidified its spot with a win over C-2 No. 5 Sutton.

Class C-2

1. BRLD (6-0) | 1 | at Louisville

2. Oakland-Craig (6-0) | 2 | Archbishop Bergan

3. St. Paul (6-0) | 3 | at O’Neill

4. Aquinas (5-1) | 4 | at North Bend Central

5. Sutton (5-1) | 5 | Sandy Creek

6. Shelby-Rising City (6-0) | 6 | Centennial

7. Doniphan-Trumbull (5-1) | 7 | Superior

8. Battle Creek (5-1) | 8 | Norfolk Catholic

9. Archbishop Bergan (6-0) | 9 | at Oakland-Craig

10. Centennial (3-3) | - | at Shelby-RC

Contenders — Hartington CC, North Bend Central, Wilber-Clatonia.

Comments — Defending state champion Centennial reenters after beating last week’s No. 10 North Bend Central. Doniphan-Trumbull survived an upset scare (14-13) from Sandy Creek, which faces Sutton this week. Archbishop Bergan has No. 2 Oakland-Craig and No. 1 BRLD the next two weeks, so the Knights have an opportunity to be on top of the ratings by the end of the regular season.

Class D-1

1. Howells-Dodge (5-0) | 1 | Elkhorn Valley

2. Wakefield (4-1) | 2 | GACC

3. Creighton (4-1) | 3 | at North Central

4. Elm Creek (5-0) | 4 | Amherst

5. BDS (5-0) | 5 | HTRS

6. Burwell (4-1) | 6 | Arcadia-LC

7. Dundy Co.-Stratton (5-0) | 7 | Hitchcock County

8. Elmwood-Murdock (4-1) | 8 | Southern

9. Cambridge (5-0) |9 | at Alma

10. Wisner-Pilger (5-0) | 10 | Homer

Contenders — Lutheran High Northeast, Neligh-Oakdale, Ravenna, Fullerton, Southern, East Butler, Arcadia-Loup City, Laurel-Concord-Coleridge, Sutherland.

Comments — The top 10 all won (Cambridge received a forfeit from Southwest), so there are no changes, although Elm Creek won by just two points over South Loup to stay unbeaten.

Class D-2

1. Humphrey SF (5-0) | 1 | at Elgin Public/PJ

2. Falls City SH (5-0) | 2 | Diller-Odell

3. Bloomfield (5-0) | 3 | Randolph

4. Johnson-Brock (4-1) | 4 | Pawnee City

5. Kenesaw (4-1) | 6 | bye

6. Central Valley (5-0) | 7 | St. Mary’s

7. Plainview (5-0) | 8 | Riverside

8. Sandhills/Thedford (5-0) | 9 | Mullen

9. CWCE (5-0) | 10 | at Stuart

10. Garden County (6-0) | - | Wauneta-Palisade

Contenders — Lawrence-Nelson, Overton, Pleasanton, Riverside, Allen, Elwood, Axtell.

Comments — The only change is Lawrence-Nelson exiting after a 42-point loss to Kenesaw, allowing undefeated Garden County to enter. Riverside (4-1) has a chance to move back into the top 10 with a game at No. 7 Plainview this week.

Six-man

1. Harvard (6-0) | 1 | at Red Cloud

2. McCool Junction (6-0) | 2 | Lewiston

Contenders — Sterling, Arthur County, Red Cloud.

Comments — Cody-Kilgore’s win over Crawford and Eustis-Farnam’s victory at Maywood-Hayes Center account for most of this week’s changes.
